One man was admitted to hospital in serious but stable conditions after he was nearly stabbed to death by another man in his community, during a fight over ganja.
Reports by the Montego Hills police are that earlier this week, both men were at home in Salt Spring, when the victim caught the accused stealing his ganja.
An argument developed at what time the victim hit the accused man.
The accused then reached for a stone which he used to hit the victim, and also brandished a knife and stabbed him multiple times.
The wounded man raised an alarm and other residents in the area rushed to his aid. The accused man then left the scene after relatives of the injured man called the police.
